We love when the air turns cool, because that means the beginning of fire pits, the holiday season, and—of course—logs burning in the fireplace. However, before lighting that first fire of the year, Garrity Stone, Inc. encourages you to make sure your fireplace is in good working order inside and out.

First, you’ll want to have your fireplace inspected and cleaned. The last thing you want is for your fireplace not to function properly. Not only can it make a mess inside your house, but it can also pose a danger to you and your home. The Chimney Institute of America recommends that you have your chimney and fireplace swept annually.

Secondly, you may want to take the time to update your fireplace’s look—especially if you have parts that are deteriorating due to age or use. Maybe it’s time to consider replacing the wood or brick fireplace with a new, wall stone exterior or a specialty limestone mantel. It’s amazing what custom quality wall stone products can do to change the look of your fireplace—right in time for holiday stockings and cozy fires.

To get quality flagstone or limestone for your fireplace project, contact Garrity Stone, Inc. of Indianapolis at (317) 546-0893. We specialize in quality wall stones, stone pavers, as well as rock materials for a number of home projects. Give us a call to ask about our stone selection, or feel free to stop by our Indianapolis location.
